Huh, so I just checked out of curiousity and Waluigi.com (which used to be Waluigi's home page and most recently redirected to the game page for 1-2-Switch) no longer goes to anything and just infinitely loads. Don't know how new of a change this was, if it was intentional or not or if it was just this URL.
I looked up Waluigi.com on a domain registry...

It was updated 2 HOURS AGO TODAY.

All I can say is pog responsibly.

EDIT: possible false alarm. WhoIs search states it was last updated last year, however ICANN states it was updated "from Registry RDAP DB" today. I should note "RDAP DB" is described as a "successor to the WhoIs protocol" so I'd say it's more trustworthy.

SECOND EDIT: after further research it seems waluigi.com has been blanked out. A HTML Source Code viewer shows https://www.waluigi.com to have no code whatsoever. I checked in case the code would show a redirect to a page that hasn't yet been published that could give us more context behind the edit, but it doesn't.

Hmm now why would nintendo make a commercial for mario 35th anniversary products and only showcase 3d world deluxe and smash ultimate? and set to release the day of the direct no less? What could possibly tie smash ultimate as a relevant product to the anniversary over the likes of 3d all-stars, mario kart ar, and all the other currently available merch?

Well no Waluigi unfortunately. I'm really happy for those who wanted Pyra and Mythra, I still need to play Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Just need to stay optimistic and hope that it'll soon be Waluigi time.

I thought it was a good direct though! Mario Golf, Skyward Sword HD, and Splatoon 3 all look great. Also gives me a reason to finally get around to playing Splatoon 2

Hey everybody, I'm back.
Pyra and Mythra look great, looking forward to seeing Waluigi playable in Smash Ultimate by the end of 2021.

Also reminder that Waluigi was added alongside King Boo into Mario Kart Tour on October for the Halloween event.

And Spirits for Luigi's Mansion 3 are still missing.

Oh, and one last thing.
Waluigi Pinball was the only old track in MKT that was remade from scratch and got a new design, me thinks there's a reason for that.

Waluigi Pinball Stage in Smash??!

Was hoping they would both be revealed at E3 so we can get it over with.
Yeah I get that feeling. I don't expect it to happen though because Nintendo would get more out of dragging the reveals and keeping the Smash hype going until they get their **** together and are able to finish developing some of their big hitting titles that have been in development hell for a while.

Conversely, we've always gotten at least two characters at E3 any year that Smash has been in development.

2013: Villager/Mega Man
2014: Mii Fighters/Palutena/Pac-Man
2015: Roy/Ryu
2018: Inkling/Daisy/Ridley
2019: Hero/Banjo

...and then I subscribe to the speculation that Steve and Sephiroth were meant to be E3 2020 Reveals.

I would love for Smash to have more announcements past June, but I honestly have no reason to believe that'll happen. This June Presentation might be our last hurrah for Smash Bros for a long, long time. Hopefully our purple man can make it for the occasion.

If we do get two reveals at e3, with one of them being Waluigi, who would you guys want to be the second e3 reveal? I think our last two fighters will be one first party, hopefully Waluigi, and one third party. I don't mind whoever we get for the third-party slot.

Crash and Wa would be a dream come true to me.

if i were to throw my hat into the speculation, i would probably guess the last two fighter's pass characters will get an e3 reveal, but then at the end of the presentation or some time after e3 they will announce either a fighters pass 3, OR that there will be a bonus character added (in the same way piranha plant was revealed as the bonus character who preceded the first fighter's pass)

I'm not holding my breath for an FP3. Wouldn't surprise me if it happened, wouldn't surprise me if it didn't.

I mean so far the past 2 passes have sold pretty well, and I suspect it will be sometime till the next smash game if they stop dlc now (considering that the switch is current in the middle of it's lifespan according to Nintendo apparently), so Nintendo will probably want to continue with a third pass since it'll make them a lot of money.

I won't say it's happening 100%, but it does seem likely.
Either way though, whether bit happens or not, I do have hope there will at least be 1 more bonus character that isn't part of FP2, and here's hoping it's the Wah.

What kind of playstyle do you think Waluigi should have in Smash? I envision him as a slippery, deceptively lightweight character with a bit of RNG - though unlike say, Judge or Command Selection, Waluigi's RNG would change up his gameplan and force both him and his opponent into new situations rather than secure him a victory/loss. (The RNG move I had in mind was a Mario Kart item box that would summon some of the more basic, less powerful items - Ray Gun, Green Shell, Home Run Bat, Super Scope, e.t.c. - kinda like the rare Peach vegetable pulls but as the whole move)

I always envisioned Waluigi as a switch stance fighter, similar to Zelda/Sheik in Melee or Gen from Street Fighter Alpha.
The default stance is his stance from Mario Tennis Aces, he fights with the tennis racket which grants him range, knockback power, and the ability to reflect projectiles.

The alternate stance is his muay thai stance in the Boxing minigame from Game&Watch 4, Waluigi loses the ability to reflect projectiles but gains speed and access to quicker moves making him more of a rushdown fighter.

Of course with Pyra/Mythra adopting and improving the stance system from Zelda/Sheik, it's safe to say that Waluigi would be much simpler in design similar to Banjo-Kazooie.

Neutral Special is Serve from Mario Tennis 64
Side Special is Swimming Return from Mario Power Tennis
Up Special is Whirluigi from Mario Power Tennis
Down Special is either his whip from Mario Strikers Charged or Item Bag from Mario Party 3 which gives him either a pathetic item or a rare item through RNG.

Final Smash is Destruction Dance
